Goodreads:  Grace Dillon was a champion figure skater until she moved to Thunder Point to escape the ruthless world of fame and competition. And though she's proud of the quiet, self-sufficient life she's created running a successful flower shop, she knows something is missing. Her life could use a little excitement. 

In a community where there are few eligible singles, high school teacher Troy Headly appoints himself Grace's fun coach. When he suggests a little companionship with no strings attached, Grace is eager to take him up on his offer, and the two enjoy…getting to know each other. 

But things get complicated when Grace's past catches up with her, and she knows that's not what Troy signed up for. Faced with losing her, Troy realizes Grace is more than just a friend with benefits. He's determined to help her fight for the life she always wished for but never believed she could have—and maybe they can find real love along the way.

Kritters Thoughts:  The 7th in the Thunder Point series and before I start the review, I would suggest picking this series up from the beginning, although somewhat companion novels, there are details of other characters that you will miss and it is better to let it build.  

Now for the review.  I don't know what it is, but I like these books more and more as this series goes.  Each of them has a little bit of sexy times, but nothing over the top and in your face and distracting from the true story.

Grace has escaped to Thunder Point to start on a clean slate with her past buried.  Troy is a high school teacher who recently got his heart broken has his crush just got married.  They keep it light and fun for a bit, but circumstances throw their relationship out of the fun zone and into the serious zone.

I absolutely adored this book!  Even more so than previous books, I loved how the secondary characters (who all have books about them in this series) were perfectly woven in and out of the story.  In some of the other books in the series, I didn't see the secondary characters and the story was caught up on the main characters.  

I also loved this couple, although I am not sure the synopsis on the book was the best representation of the book, I liked the story better than the synopsis!  Again, I would say start this one in the series.  They read fast and once you get started you won't want to stop!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel (and I know there will be more)

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Little Bird Publicity.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.

  1. I read the first in this series and I wasn't very taken, but I will keep going if you say they get better and better!
